The Alliance Française De Bombay in association with Mumbai University was celebrating Journée de France (France Day) at their campus today and they invited Le 15 over to give the students taste of Paris. Equipped with our induction plates and pans (and a lot more!) we reached the campus all geared up to show the students how they can make Crêpes at home and how awfully simple and versatile a chocolate ganache can be.

Marie was total a hit with the crowd with her Crêpe-flipping skills and the some folks from the audience even volunteered to try flipping the crêpe as the crowd cheered on. Everyone was amazed to see how easy it is to make ganache, and with just a little tweak in the quantity of cream you can make chocolate sauce, chocolate ganache for icing cake, chocolate truffles, fillings for crepes and chocolate.
